I have a cap for lower jaw molars. I used to have a metal cap for one molar but due to pain it was removed nd to reduce stress on the tooth, cap was placed for two teeth with adjacent teeth for support. But now from past three days there is pain in the tooth below the cap for the first tooth again. It's been two years that it has been placed. Do I have to replace the cap?! Is der anyway that the wearingout of adhesive in between the tooth is problem.
What cud be the replacement cost for such caps in Hyderabad?

Hello...by the details given by you,teeth you are talking about is decayed and is not treated before cap placement.Pain might be because of decay but not due to cap.Tooth has to be treated either by restoration or root canal treatment and then cap has to be placed.kindly visit nearby dentist to have proper clinical examination and xray for further treatment to relieve tooth pain.
Pain after the placement of cap indicates that the the cap needs to be adjusted in its contour to prevent that extra pressure on the cap..... this could also be due to RCT not being done on the tooth below or an improper RCT being done..... in either case, an x-ray can provide the correct diagnosis and the treatment can be advised accordingly..... single caps do not need support from existing teeth for the retention and that will not solve the pressure problem also..... now the pain could also be because of the absence of root canal treatment on the adjoining teeth.... unfortunately, now because those teeth have been prepared for crowns, you cannot leave them without the crowns but proper RCT of all these three teeth is important for complete relief from your symptoms.... Regards.....
Pain is not related to crowns/caps but the tooth underneath. Get an xray. Either there is decay below the cap and you need an rct or the existing rct is inadequate and is failing. Get an opinion from an expert. Also you never need support from additional teeth to support a cap. It has to retain itself.
Hi, It is not as complicated as u are thinking, just visit a dentist get an x ray done, restore the offending tooth or get it extracted if it can't be restored, then either go for bridge or implants depending on the situation. Cost may vary depending on treatment u opt for. Still 10000 to 30000 can be assumed.
If the cap was placed without getting RCT then you might need to get that first and if it was done earlier then as per ur x ray either get pressure relieved from ur cap or re-RCT and pressure points adjustment on the cap . Sometimes the capped tooth also pains if u are continously chewing from that side only or if you are developing gum problem (pockets ). Physical examination of the tooth is needed so you must visit your dentist .
